Updating AVG 6 free addition - can't connect

  TimCDC 19:57 25 Mar 2004

Over the last couple of weeks, I have found updating a real hit and miss affair (usually resulting in a message, "An automatic connection to the Internet could not be established"), but if I keep trying often enough, eventually I get through. My father (both of us are on onetel dialups) hasn't been able to manage this at all, and to his recent disgust has just been infected with a virus that avg detected but couldn't clean.

Just to make sure I am as uptodate as I can be, I went direct to the grisoft site, and downloaded the relevant .bin file but can't open it successfully. My questions: (!)

has anyone else had similar trouble?

what should I do to get the downloaded update file to install?

Many thanks

I too have had similar problems with the auto update facility. I save the update that I require onto my hard drive ( I navigate to my hard drive, program files, grisoft, AVG, then Update and save the update file there) when I restart AVG it updates automatically, similar to when it used to update online, but I presume from the update file saved on my hard drive. Not sure of all the mechanics, but it seems to work for me!! Good Luck.
